Triple Valley | Unique Kangaroo Island Landholding Private Hardwood Plantation

  • Private Hardwood Plantation
  • 635 hectares freehold
  • Close to Hanson Bay

'Triple Valley' is a unique landholding on Kangaroo Island in South Australia. It comprises 635.6 hectares or 1,570 acres of freehold land.

Located at Gosse at the western end of the Island, Triple Valley is situated 48 kilometres south west of Parndana, abuts the famous Flinders Chase National Park and is only a 15 minute drive north of Hanson Bay.

The property has been developed as a hardwood plantation, specifically Tasmanian Blue Gum, established in 2005. The estate was burnt over in the 2019-20 Kangaroo Island Ravine Bushfires, with the trees having now coppiced from below and the outer bark stripped off leaving white unblemished wood in the main.

It is estimated that there is approximately 150,000 tonnes of standing timber on the property that has the potential for a range of uses and applications. The vendor has been investigating the potential to produce biochar, a charcoal that is used for improving soils for agriculture and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The property also presents an opportunity for reversion to agriculture. The district of Gosse is a high-rainfall area of the Island where traditional land uses of grazing and cropping are prevalent.

Whilst positioned in a relatively remote part of the Island, famous beaches and other localities including Stokes Bay, Seal Bay, the Cape Borda Lighthouse and Kangaroo Island's largest town, Kingscote, are all within a one hour's drive of Triple Valley.

Rural production on Kangaroo Island while relatively diverse, is mainly focussed on the prime lamb, beef, and wool sectors. Other lesser industries include horticulture (seed potato production and vegetables), as well as wine and more recently spirit distillation, aquaculture and numerous cottage scale industries such as dairy and honey production.

Cereals, oilseeds and legumes (notably fava beans) are also grown with branding built around Kangaroo Island Pure Grain. Cropping is focussed on the central and eastern areas of Kangaroo Island while the western end being higher rainfall tends to be utilised more for grazing. The expansion of forestry throughout the 1990's and 2000's decades occurred mainly within the higher rainfall areas.

The Kangaroo Island airport upgrade in 2018 enabled direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney which has boosted tourism and exports from the Island. Kangaroo Island continues to be recognised as offering some distinct benefits including a strong local community and an increasingly recognised tourism brand.

Triple Valley is For Sale by Expressions of Interest, closing Wednesday 15 December 2021 at 12pm (ACDT).
